The first sentence is way too long.  Also, you are only going to have around two, and at most three double spaced pages to work with.  What you have is a bunch of mumbo jumbo that tells me nothing about you and your qualities and what you would add to law school as far as diversity.  Unless your numbers are just extraordinary, your paper MUST give the adcom a reason to remember your name.  If you put too much emphasis on the problems of nursing facilities, which everyone knows suck and are in need of help, the adcom will end up having no idea who you are.

Law School Admissions / June 2004 LSAT?
« on: September 17, 2004, 07:48:58 AM »
I thought the writing sample on the LSAT was graded using a scale from like H - T.  Anyone else ever heard of something like this, and if it's true, where do u find it on the LSAT answer sheets?  TY!


Check my PS for grammatical, punctuation errors?  I will be sending my apps. out today, so I know it is a late notice, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

k...a little input.  My mother passed away when i was nine.  I am now 27.  I have had plenty of time to deal with the situation and reflect on how it has shaped my life.  I believe your brother's death is a sad and delicate issue.  I am not telling you it would be bad to write about.  I am just saying a law school application may not be the best place to begin.  And listen, you quite possibly could have had counseling, etc. and really come to grips with the issue.  I am just saying it is really early in the grieving process.  Although writing about it could help, I feel a PS statement shouldn't be the place to start. 

I began my PS with a short concise sentence stating "my mother passed away from a malignant brain tumor when I was nine."
I then moved onto achievements, etc. in my life.  I put one line in the paper about my mother.  If u really want to add something, definately make it only a few sentences.  More than that and the Adcom might begin to think your not ready to handle the stress of law school b/c your loss is so recent.

Hoped I helped a little.  If not, sorry..If I can help, throw me a line.
